Front Matter Templates
For those using the Microsoft Word templates: As formatting may change between different versions of Microsoft Word, and as versions of Microsoft Word can differ according to user, we strongly encourage you to check your Word document's style against the PDF to ensure proper formatting.

Concerning Microsoft Word 2007 and 2010: The Word template documents are protected documents that must be "unrestricted" in order to enter text into the gray fields and also to copy/paste into your Microsoft document one file. When you "open" the template documents go to the Tool Bar, click on Review, then on Restrict Editing, then on Stop Protection on the lower right-hand side of your screen. You can now populate the fields and complete the template document.
Once the gray fields have been completed, any non-used gray fields may be removed by placing your cursor at the bottom right side of each gray field that you wish to remove and pressing the Backspace key twice. The gray fields will be removed and the lines will be centered.
You are now ready to save the template documents to your computer. Click File, Save As and name your documents appropriately.
